SUPERLIGA UGLY : PROMOTING FAN INTERACTION?

Ugly dustup at Toyota Park during the Chicago Fire’s 1-0 SuperLiga win over UNAM Pumas Tuesday Night.  I know Section 8 very well and they are a hardcore supporters group, but they don’t go cruising around Toyota Park looking to swat people with flag poles. What were those Pumas fans doing right on top of Section 8?

Oh, and just out of curiosity, Where the F was the security? From what I’ve gathered this went on for 8 to 10 minutes during the match.  Monterrey Security has been used at every Spanish language Chicago area soccer event, since I can remember, you’d think they’d eventually get better at their job.

Below is a link to a Chicago Tribune photographer Scott Strazzante’s ‘Shooting from the Hip’ page.  Strazzante post’s a wonderful photo of the brawl, but the comments section is full of first hand accounts, complaints, finger pointing and a bit of bitterness too.
